Hey from Patty in Lula, Ga. I have had the honor to speak with you twice in the last two weeks, ranting about BP aka the new Black Plague. Today, feeling may blood pressure rise and fearing bleeding from my ears, I had to write about this crisis in Arizona. Get past my long blond hair and green eyes you will see plainly I am of Native American decent, Cherokee to be exact,Grandfather born on the Qualla (town) reservation, N,C. Taking that part of the family tree I feel entitled to have an opinion on what is going on in Arizona USA! There is no way to see past the brutial fact that this new law,instituted against illegal immigrants from Mexico is now RACIAL PROFILING - I have looked at this from every angle I can think up. I would guess most people in this country are decended from immigrants, who came to North America fleeing persecuition or famine. You know, "Give me your tired, poor etc." written on the base of that big green statue off the shore of New York. Now, my people were invaded, culture all but destroyed, stolen from and parked on reservations to this day. My heritage gives me the right to sound off. This law is neither fair nor balanced. Not every immigrant is bringing drugs across the border. Neither are they gang members nor trouble makers. Did we just drop sixty BILLION dollars yesterday into this very unpopular "war against terrorism" in Afganistan? Send our next generation off to fight under a lie and a flag while it is really all about oil and Empire Building?! If there is any terrosism going on, tag WE are the terrorists. Question: could we not take these monies wasted and perhaps set up immigration stations along the border to process these people less fortunate trying to find a better life faster. My husband, born in Canada had to jump thru a lot of hoops to become an American citizen - it took awhile. Thanks for reading my rant, a devoted viewer. Pax. - Patty-

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
